Chelsea players are gearing up for a return to pre-season training but there is mixed news on the injury front with just over three weeks to go before the 2020/21 Premier League season gets underway.
Captain Cesar Azpilicueta has said that he expects to be fit for the resumption of training after coming off in the first half of the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal with a hamstring strain but United States attacker Christian Pulisic may miss the opening week of the campaign as he continues to recover from a more serious hamstring injury also sustained at Wembley.
